Stereotyping / Why words matter in the workplace
Biases and societal stereotypes can influence our perception, judgment, language and actions. We may not be aware that we are engaging in behavior that may be offensive. Being aware of common stereotypes and biases (both hidden and explicit) can help you challenge negative assumptions about others. At the end of the day, it always comes down to one word… “respect.” Be sure to check your filters and look for ways to be inclusive and respectful.
Bias refers to the persistent, harmful and unequal treatment of someone based solely on some characteristic they possess or their apparent membership in or identification with a particular group. By being self-aware and willing to engage with others when bias is unintentionally implied or expressed, we can better resolve problems and promote more effective working relationships.
